Affiliate clickbank hoplink question

    Hi there

    I am a newbie for clickbank to promote a product and wil be doing it by adwords

    As you need, we need to put the destination URL so that they can track it down

    I am wondering whether it is the same for either of them?

    1) http://MYUSERNAME.product.hop.clickbank.net/
    if someone clicks on it, obviously will be directed to the website, hwoever...

    Can this website be also entered as destination URL?
    2) Welcome to CollegeNET

    Or the link has to be entered for 1) ONLY?
    As in 2), I can still see my affiliate username in the order page at the bottom before they proceed.

    So I just want to make sure before starting the campaign

    Any answer will be appreciated :)

    Sorry, I just rechecked the message and I dunno why it has "welcome to college net" which is not the one as I co incidently made an example

    The correction example for no. 2) is as follows:

    h t tp:// www. product. com/?hop=MYUSERNAME

    (I spaced it out as I didn't want to make it "welcome to college net" link)

    Hope it makes the question clear now

    I don't deal with Clickbank at all - but I know they recently changed the link structure and you should use the new links structure which I think is #1 in your example.

    But are you really sure you want to start with CB? Have you read some of the threads here about why thats one of the hardest places to start? And are you really sure you are ready for Adwords?

    Also did you know that if other affiliates are advertising for that product using the same keywords only one ad will be shown, so you may have to build a landing page on your own site to send traffic to 1st.

    Really think you need to study a bit more about hoplinks, how to test to be sure they track and learn more about Adwords.

    Linda has some very good info there. Make sure you understand Adwords and clickbank.
